Find Your Healing Medicine

Step too far left or too far right and life’s scales will tip and we all lose our balance. Some days we stay down longer than others. Other days we pop right back up like a Jack-in-the-Box. When we finally rise from our tumble off the scales of life, there is often a lot of healing to be done. Truth be told, most of us forget about the healing process. We ignore our wounds and dismiss our aches. We put a lot of effort into getting back to wherever we were. Slowly, the stench of festering wounds begin to seep through our lavishly adorned surfaces. Our aches eventually turn into chronic pains. We find ourselves frivolously trying to patch ourselves back together while still attempting to juggle life. Here is where spirit will say, give life a rest and give yourself time to heal and recharge.

Finding places and ways to recharge your energy can be difficult, but you can manage. The age-old sentiment “people make time for the things they love” rings ever-true when we are dealing in matters of self and well-being. We all must accept that it is perfectly normal to need a minute to breathe, woo-sah and find balance. Let us be honest, sometimes a minute is all you have to catch a breath before the children are feuding, the phone is ringing, and the pot on the stove is boiling over again. Allow yourself to say I need a one minute for me. Turn off the stove. Put the phone on mute. As long as the children are not hanging from the ceiling fan, disappear into your bedroom closet for a minute if you have to, and simply breathe.

There are so many ways to heal. You have to find what works for you. Taking two deep and meaningful breaths can change your entire mood instantly. Maybe watching the branches outside of your window sway in the breeze while you sip a cup of tea is your zen moment. Lighting a candle or two and meditating might get you pumped. Grabbing your favorite tarot or oracle deck and doing a 7-card spread may be exactly what you need to get you through your work week. Only you know what works for you. Only you can find what helps you heal.
